When we examine theology in a dry and methodical manner, it is easy to lose sight of the application in real life.
I am always on the lookout for cases where a person's theology is put to the test, and the results are made plain.
"I wasn't afraid to die. I was afraid of living without a purpose."That is a good start - but one must ask where that purpose comes from? And where does it go?
"What I learned from my travels was that my students had grown up to be kind and caring people."That's it? And when those students are gone?
"what matters is not so much about what we learn in class, but what we feel in our hearts."I'm sorry, but that is nothing. It is dust.
